An informative evening in Quincy with The Sierra Fund

TSF Quincy Public Meeting

Last Thursday over sixty people showed up to the Plumas County Fairgrounds for an informational event about legacy mines in the Sierra Nevada hosted by a regional nonprofit organization, The Sierra Fund (TSF). The event was presented with the support of the County of Plumas and the California Indian Environmental Alliance.

“We were thrilled to have such a broad range of participants attend the meeting,” said Elizabeth Martin, CEO of The Sierra Fund. “The number of people who attended and the great questions they asked clearly show that folks are interested in our region’s mining history and how it plays into our lives today.”

Hold the Date – Community Meeting in Quincy, April 3

The Sierra Fund Science Director Dr. Carrie Monohan will present “Fish and Dust: Legacy Impacts from the Gold Rush.” This presentation is an overview of two studies The Sierra Fund completed to assess human exposure to heavy metals.
